What are the signs of pyometra in cats
If your cat has pyometra, you’ll notice that she has a full bladder and she is achy and restless. It can be hard to tell if your cat has pyometra because it’s such a symptom-less illness.
In most cases, your veterinarian will want to run a test to make sure your cat does have pyometra. In some cases, this can be done by taking a dip in a water tub for your cat.
This test involves putting your cat in a tub of water, and measuring the amount of urine she produces. If your cat produces a large amount of urine, then it is likely that she does have pyometra.
What should I do if my cat has pyometra?
In many cases, your veterinarian will recommend that you bring your cat back to your veterinarian for treatment. This can be done in a hospital or in your home.
To treat pyometra, your veterinarian will need to remove the uterus and ovaries. He or she will also need to flush the uterus with antibiotics to prevent infection.
If your cat is treated within the first 24 hours, the chances of it becoming pregnant again are very low.
If your cat is not treated within 24 hours, it is more likely that she will get an infection and become pregnant again.
If your cat has pyometra and cannot be treated at home, she will need to be taken to a veterinarian. The veterinarian will need to remove the uterus and ovaries, as well as give your cat a shot to prevent pyometra from returning.
How can pyometra be prevented?
In most cases, your veterinarian may recommend that you have your cat spayed or neutered. This will prevent your cat from getting pyometra.
If you don’t have a cat, you can take preventative measures. Some of these include:
Keeping your cat indoors.
Keeping your cat inside her litter box.
Feeding your cat a high-quality cat food.

That pushing and pulling that cats do with their paws, which is a kneading-type motion, is comforting. During infancy, kittens knead their mama's belly to get milk flowing when they're hungry.
